Sometimes the most important things in life are the ones we forget. This inspiring collection of hand-drawn notes began with a simple premise: It’s worth remembering what’s most important in life, even when you can’t see the bigger picture. From his very first note, written hastily in the backseat of a taxi for the benefit of the next passenger (it said “Never give up”), J. J. Penn has inspired both passersby and devoted online fans with his uplifting and quirky reminders. Every day since then, Penn’s simple notes, created with nothing more than a pen and a sticky pad, have been photographed and then left in public—on a park bench, at a bus stop—anonymously and hopefully, to spread a little goodwill and brighten someone’s day. Collected in book form, they serve as a heartfelt reminder about what matters most.

Too Small to Ignore

The time has come, argues Dr. Wess Stafford, for a major paradigm shift: Children are too important and too intensely loved by God to be left behind or left to chance. Children belong to all of us and we are compelled to intervene on their behalf. We must invest in children–all across the world. There are strategic, persuasive reasons–beyond love and kindness–to invest in children. Today they may snuggle into your lap, if you let them. But tomorrow you may not have access to them in the corridors of power they might occupy. Now is the time to shape the future. Dr. Stafford issues an urgent call for change. His adventures as a boy raised in a West African village provide an often-humorous and always-captivating backdrop to his profound and inspiring challenges. Wess lived the reality of “it takes a village to raise a child” and calls us to “be that loving village for children everywhere.” This book will encourage you to turn your good, loving intentions into strategic actions and empower you to help change the world–and the future–forever: one child at a time.

From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations—an instant Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller. Why have history's greatest minds—from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top performers from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities—embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise. The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms. By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well. From the Hardcover edition.

In The Conversation That Matters Most, DeWitt Rowe takes his readers on a unique and fascinating journey of self-exploration and discovery. The author not only guides us toward a complete reevaluation of how we view success; he convinces us that the way we define it and pursue it must also be reexamined. How often do we stop and question the assumptions that have defined us? Are we more intelligent than we have been led to believe? Do our idiosyncrasies make us strange...or simply unique? How often do we make a decision based on what's expected of us, rather than on our innate sense of what works? DeWitt delves into areas that are rarely discussed, areas that reward us with a richness of comprehension, awareness, discovery, and wisdom. Every page is a reminder of the control we have over our lives if only we can understand how to use that control in a positive and result-oriented manner. Utilizing this book's guides and lessons, we can be assured of a fuller and more satisfying life.

In this book, he combines cutting-edge insights from positive psychology with classic psychological research to help parents identify and develop habits that will strengthen their family. In his trademark warm and empathic style Justin covers topics like finding the most effective parenting style for your child, getting relationships right and how that leads to effective discipline, using mindfulness in parenting, being emotionally available to your children - and so much more.
